Political comment: International revolving doors

Corruption takes many forms, and has become more refined since the days of brown paper bags. In Australia, we have lobbyists, interests and politicians, with the traditional dividing lines between these three now all but invisible, and numerous examples of people moving from one position to another, and then back again, as they prioritise personal gain over what's best for the country.

The N.R.D. Annual 3 day Carnival at Lismore attracted many entries from our Tweed Byron ladies including bowlers from Condong, Brunswick Heads, Cudgen Leagues and Pottsville clubs. The most successful of these being a composite team made up of Marie Comerford, George Moore (Pottsville), Amanda Marron (Alstonville) and Jill Raeburn (Lennox Heads).  These fine bowlers collected the Runners Up prize on Day One and third prize on Day Two.  Out of the 78 teams competing in the comp, they were one of the only 7 teams to win 8 out of a possible 9 games and were unlucky to get pipped at the post on Day Three to be relegated to fifth position overall.  A really splendid effort for first timers at this event. Well done, ladies. Congratulations on a great performance.

Back on the home front competitions are still being finalised.  At Cudgen Leagues Lynnete Pickett, Judy Martin and Elizabeth Feming (S) won the Club Selected Triples final after defeating J. Gillie, Rosemary Lowe and Jan May (S).  Kingscliff also conducted their Club Selected Triples final with Dorothy Greenwell, Di Jones and Jane Bennett (S) overtaking Ann Graham, Jane Bennett and Jenny Scher (S) in their encounter.  Congratulations, girls.
